How to purchase a stock photo

Finding a suitable stock photo

Simply enter one or more keywords in the search box. If you are using the Chrome browser you can even enter your search via voice entry. Select a stock photo by clicking on the thumbnail in the search result to take a closer look. Use filters to further narrow your search. Different license types are available for licensing.

Royalty Free is simple and easy to handle and is characterized by virtually unlimited use rights. For rights managed stock photos, the use is defined for a specific period of time, a specific territory and a specific user. Rights Managed is usually found with particularly high quality images or rare content. It is also the standard license form for editorial images from press photographers.

Choose your purchase option

There are various purchase options available which can be more suitable depending on the situation. For regular stock photo needs subscribtions are ideal, starting from as little as 10 stock photos per month. Image Packs are suitable if you only need a few stock photos immediately and beside that, there is always the option to purchase a stock photo individually. Another attractive option is the possibility to purchase credits. Depending on the size of the credit pack you pruchase, you can always get a discount. Prices for individual stock photos can be found on stock photo preview page on the right, prices for the other purchase options can be found here.

If you have opted for a subscription, image pack or credits, you can download directly from the stock photo on the preview page. If you have decided to purchase your stock photo as a single images you can add your chosen stock photo to the shopping cart by clicking on the shopping cart icon below the stock photo and make your purchase after accessing the shopping cart.
